@xtwl – personally I’m less bothered about who wins the title than that we get a good fight for it; whether that’s between team-mates or a multitude of teams battling it out.
I’d gladly see Vettel and Ferrari win the title as long as they were fought hard for it every step of the way! I don’t want to go into each weekend knowing that unless something remarkable happens, Hamilton will be the victor.28th February 2017, 8:42 at 8:42 am #335883
I’ll start the ball rolling with ‘drivers to win their home GP multiple times’?21st February 2017, 15:51 at 3:51 pm #335192
@davidnotcoulthard – they all recorded the Fastest Lap whilst winning their first Grand Prix?18th February 2017, 9:09 at 9:09 am #33505216th February 2017, 10:22 at 10:22 am #334977

The only drivers to win Le Mans and a Formula One Grand Prix in the same year?31st January 2017, 15:48 at 3:48 pm #334656
@keithcollantine – works for me. I am well and truly stumped on this one… I wouldn’t like to admit how long I’ve spent on Pedro Diniz’s Wikipedia entry the last few days! … should probably get some work done!29th January 2017, 16:49 at 4:49 pm #334573
They’ve all had a previous World Champion as team-mate at some stage?
Again… I imagine that’s too straight forward, so I’ll do some more digging and try again!27th January 2017, 13:59 at 1:59 pm #334533
I’ll start the ball rolling with:
1) All teams who have won the WCC
2) All teams who have had Jenson Button as a driver
I don’t expect either of those are correct – so I’ll add a smidge more detail to one guess!
Teams who have had a driver leave the team immediately after winning the championship?
Button – Brawn – 09
Hill – Williams – 96
Alonso – Renault – 06
Prost – McLaren – 89
Enjoying this game!25th January 2017, 20:07 at 8:07 pm #334490
@hunocsi – this is probably quite a stretch, but are they all Grand Prix where the Constructors Championship has been decided only once?
Malaysian GP – 2000 – Ferrari
Hungarian GP – 2004 – Ferrari
Indian GP – 2013 – Red Bull
Portuguese GP – 1993 – Williams
To be honest, I didn’t check all the other years for Portugal and Hungary, so this may well be wrong!25th January 2017, 11:45 at 11:45 am #334479
I’ve been thinking/searching for ages for something more detailed than @theawesomefish came up with… but I reckon he’s right!25th January 2017, 10:11 at 10:11 am #334475
@jackysteeg – That’s right, they’ve all scored points for more than one team in a single season.
Andrea de Cesaris – Sauber/Jordan 1994
Jean Alesi – Prost/Jordan 2001
Daniil Kvyat – Red Bull/Toro Rosso 2016
Max Verstappen – Toro Rosso/Red Bull 2016
Of course there are more examples of this in the earlier years of F1, but surprisingly few in the last 20/30 years (including Sebastian Vettel). Would be interested to know if anyone found any more!
Looking forward to the next question :-)25th January 2017, 8:32 at 8:32 am #334468
Incidentally, Sebastian Vettel could also join this club…25th January 2017, 8:31 at 8:31 am #334467
@theawesomefish – apologies, I wasn’t clear… there’s an additional detail that stops Frentzen joining under the criteria I am looking for, not your ‘most recent season’ guess.
It’s not as tenuous as your latest guess either :-)
So to confirm – you’re on the right track with swapping teams mid-season… I’ll give you a clue: look at the results for each driver in those seasons.24th January 2017, 22:29 at 10:29 pm #334463
